FLRA Launches Electronic Filing for Cases Filed with the Office of the General Counsel (July 25, 2012)

The Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA) is pleased to announce that today it launched the final phase of its initiative to make electronic filing or "eFiling" available to parties in all cases before the FLRA.  In this third and final stage of the FLRA's eFiling initiative, parties may now electronically file unfair labor practice (ULP) charges and representation petitions with the Office of the General Counsel (OGC) online using the FLRA Case eFiling System, which is accessible at www.FLRA.gov/eFiling.  Parties have been successfully using the FLRA’s Case eFiling System to file documents in arbitration, negotiability, unfair labor practice, and representation cases with the Authority, and requests for Federal Service Impasses Panel assistance in the resolution of negotiation impasses for several months.   The FLRA's eFiling system was developed to provide easier, more user-friendly access to the FLRA and its services.  It is another way in which the FLRA is using technology to improve the customer-service experience.  Detailed information about eFiling cases with the FLRA, including step-by-step instructions on how to eFile ULP charges and representation petitions with the OGC and how to contact the OGC’s eFiling Help Desk, can be found on the FLRA’s eFiling webpage.  To view the full announcement, click here.
